Ciao!
I got past my first LD. It was fun making my game, it was fun playing games and there were lots of great games.
My target before entering LD was “reach top 100 overall”, i didn’t reach it, but i think #118 / 717 is still a good job for my first (and only) released Unity3D game.

My entry:
Space Mission

I got top 100 in 3 categories:
#50 Audio, i am the last in top 50 audio rating. Both the music and the audio effects were made during the 48H compo, but these were generated by automatic scripts, the only tweak i made was to better loop jetpack sound, so this rating’s credit goes to generators.
#62 in Fun rating is a satisfying result, i thought the game was too short and too easy, actually it was, but people still rated it fun and it’s my half victory: Fun is what games are about.
#78 in Humor rating. For some reason people found my game amusing, probably i should thank the starting angry cat or the first game over most player experienced.

Now the really bad ones (under top half):
#393 Innovation. I cloned game boy colors, made a platform/shooter game featuring a Jetpack, a Kitten and Slimes. Oh, there were deadly spikes too! Yay, lots of innovations there, I thought i was going to be over #700 on this rating
#439 Theme. In most single player games you are alone versus something, but you’re not so “alone” if there are monsters around. Most of the games i played followed “alone” theme better than me, and i feel my mediocre theme rating was fair.

For those who might still want to play it or to see my post mortem and timelapse, here’s links:
